I've said many times recently that I am staggered at the sheer volume of new ukulele brands emanating from China these days. And the Caramel brand seems to be one that has a lot of people talking very positively. Whether that is because they are genuinely good ukuleles or because they are ludicrously cheap I am not sure. Either way, I thought it would be good to see what the fuss was all about.
Does not stay in tune Sharp frets The sound is a bit tiny Bundles, bundles, bundles! They are everywhere and every manufacturer or reseller seems to thrive on them. Well, they are so abundant as the demand for them is pretty high. And you probably can guess why the demand is that high — they are just that damn convenient.
Unless you are planning on slowly building up your collection of accessories, spending hours on research and a lot of money on them, chances are you have thought about getting a bundle deal. Build The DUS-1 is a traditional soprano ukulele.
Soprano ukuleles are usually the smallest one in size and do not have an amazing volume but they make up for it in the tone and comfort. The all-mahogany body and beck work very well to produce a sweet sound that is also pretty consistent. Unfortunately, the work done on the fretboard is not that great.
The frets are a bit sharp this is not the case with all of the products, most probably.
Trust me, accessories come and go BUT hardware stays well… unless you take it to a shop and have them changed, but you get the point. So, this uke ships with Donner patented chrome-plated guitar style tuners but ALAS the problem that so many owners of affordable ukuleles have, will not be avoided.
You will have to tune quite a bit in the beginning. There is also a quality rosewood bridge that is also very functional and allows for easy change of strings. What you get when you buy this bundle is a ukulele bag, strap, carbon nylon string and digital clip-on tuner.
Strings are pretty soft and will be gentle on your hands.
It also helps produce more mellow and sweet sound. This bundle has pretty much everything to suffice your needs, especially if you have never had a ukulele before.
Sound Yes, it is great to get a ukulele that has nice tonewood and bunch of accessories BUT unless the sound is good, you probably waste your money. The DUS-1, I think, is one of those products. While this soprano ukulele does not have a big sound if you really do not want small sound, maybe look somewhere else it is has a nice tonal range and mellow, beautiful sound.
While this uke sounds nice with the strings that come with it, I would recommend switching up with something else to up the pitch and possibly the sound a little bit more. While you can find a deal that has pretty much all the accessories you think you need and the uke itself looks amazing, there is always going to be an issue or two with the overall performance of the instrument.
